A 20-year-old Philomath man pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges alleging he took photos and videos of a woman while she was naked and without her knowledge.

A charging document filed Oct. 31 in Benton County Circuit Court alleges Jacob Alan Eveler took photographs and videos of a woman while she was naked and in a place where she had a reasonable expectation of privacy. The alleged incidents took place between July and October of this year.

Eveler pleaded not guilty to two counts of invasion of personal privacy, a misdemeanor, and one count of first-degree invasion of personal privacy, a felony. He appeared in court out of custody.

Judge David Connell ordered Eveler not to have contact with the alleged victim.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Ryan Joslin read a statement from the woman, who said she had changed the locks on her doors.

“The fact that he’s still out there makes me wonder what he’s doing without my knowledge,” the women’s statement read.

The judge appointed defense attorney David Corden to represent Eveler.
